Record label Cassetron will publish the vinyl soundtrack for Tail of the Sun in August, featuring music from the Artdink-developed PlayStation game. Preorders have opened at distributors Light in the Attic in Seattle and Black Screen Records in Europe.

Taking place in a colorful prehistoric setting, the action role-playing stars a caveman attempting to build a tower of mammoth tusks to reach the sun. Audio for the game is by Yasuyuki Suzuki and Emiko Suganuma.

Tail of the Sun launched in April of 1996 for the Sony PlayStation, directed by Kazutoshi Iida. The director described the concept as an "anti-Mario game," in that the story could conclude without a happy ending.

From the product page:
WILD, PURE, SIMPLE LIFE. Limited analog LP (Color Vinyl!) release of the 1996 video game "Tail of the Sun" original soundtrack is on the way! In the mid-90s, when a series of never-before-seen games appeared on the market, the bizarre game of the century, "Tail of the Sun," is now and will never fade from existence.

The soundtrack will be unleashed on the concrete jungle with the latest remastering!This work, which was born from the idea of throwing in everything that came to mind, has become a masterpiece that continues to be loved to this day as a work that appeals to the player's primitive nature and gives strange, indescribable sensations.The music is also a masterpiece of techno/electronic music, mixing from the very primitive rhythms to cosmology, death, love, and even a train announcement.
